CppCon 2016: Herb Sutter “Leak-Freedom in C++... By Default.” | CppCon 2016

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 00:00:00 GMT

Published on Sep 26, 2016

Presentation Slides, PDFs, Source Code and other presenter materials are available at:

Lifetime safety means writing code that, by construction, is guaranteed to eliminate two things: (a) use of null/dangling pointers (including pointerlike things such as references, iterators, views, and ranges), and (b) leaks (including the rare 1% case where we're tempted to admit the possibility of an ownership cycle or need to support lock-free concurrent data structures).
Last year, my CppCon 2015 talk "Writing Good C++14... By Default" focused on (a), null/dangling, because it's the more difficult and usually more serious problem. I gave an overview of a new approach of using static analysis rules to eliminate use of null and dangling in C++. That work continues and we're in the process of writing down the formal rules for the approach that I showed last year.
This year, the focus will be on (b), leaks: The talk aims to begin with a set of simple rules, the "5-minute talk" to demonstrate that a handful of rules can be taught broadly to programmers of all levels, and results in code that is clean and free of leak bugs by construction.
But, since we'll still have 85 minutes left, we can use the time to spelunk through a series of "Appendix" code examples, in which we'll demonstrate "why and how" to apply those rules to a series of increasingly complex/difficult situations, and that are aimed at increasingly advanced and "clever" (note: not always a good thing) programs and programmers. We'll address questions such as: How should we represent Pimpl types? How should we represent trees – what should the child and parent pointer types be, and (when) should they be unique and when shared? How should we deal with "intra-module" or "encapsulated" cycles when you control all the objects in the cycle, such as all the nodes within a Graph? And what about "inter-module" or "compositional" cycles when you don't know in advance about all the objects that could be in the cycle, such as when combining libraries written by different people in a way that may or may not respect proper layering (notoriously, using callbacks can violate layering)? The answers focus on cases where we have solid guidance, and then move toward some more experimental approaches for potentially addressing the ~1% of cases that aren't yet well covered by unique_ptr, shared_ptr, and weak_ptr.

Solving the Web Performance Crisis

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 22:44:12 GMT

Adapted from an internal Microsoft event - presented by Nolan Lawson. The slides for this presentation are available here.

Recent research by DoubleClick shows that 53% of mobile sites are abandoned if they take longer than 3 seconds to load, and that the average load time on 3G is 19 seconds. Worse, a report by TwinPrime shows that mobile networks aren't always improving – in the U.S., LTE speeds actually decreased 50% in the past year. In this talk, I'll analyze the web performance crisis and show how we can combat it by using the latest advances in web tooling, as well as dusting off some forgotten best practices from our industry's past.

Please note there's a minor error where Nolan says 2000s and meant 2010s. He deeply regrets the error (a)

Kinect to Food (and Grocery Shopping)

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:00:00 GMT

This has to be one of the coolest "real-world" Kinect implementations...

The first ‘Supermarket of the Future’ is now open for business, and it’s crazy

"If you thought Amazon Go — the funky corner store concept where there are no checkouts and the store automatically bills you for whatever you walk out with — would lay claim to the future of supermarket shopping unopposed, think again. Carlo Ratti, an MIT professor who founded the institution’s Senseable City Laboratory to conceptualize how technology can impact the lives of city-dwellers (and who also runs the Carlo Ratti Associati design firm) partnered with Italian grocer Coop to create what it calls a “Supermarket of the Future.” It’s a grocery store with a tech twist, and it’s now open for business.

Now open in Milan, Italy, the futuristic grocery store is like nothing that’s come before it, both in terms of tech integration and even in its layout. Products aren’t just stacked haphazardly on shelves or tossed in bins; the items are curated and meticulously, and everything from their origin to their path to the store itself is tracked and cataloged for the consumer

When a customer wants to know more about any item of produce, like an apple or a head of lettuce, they simply hold the item up and an overhead display reveals all the important facts about it. Microsoft Kinect sensors built into the mirrored display identify the item and spit out all the vital details. Customers can see detailed information on allergens, the item’s carbon footprint, and check pricing and current store promotions related to it.

Kubernetes Support in Azure Container Services | Azure Friday

Thu, 12 Jan 2017 22:00:00 GMT

In this episode of Azure Friday, Scott Hanselman is joined by Brendan Burns (Partner Architect, at Microsoft & Kubernetes co-founder) to talk about containers and support for Kubernetes orchestration in Azure Container Services. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

As Brendan wrote in his blog post on, Bringing Kubernetes Support to Azure Container Service, "The integration of Kubernetes into ACS means that with a few clicks in the Azure portal, or by running a single command in the new python-based Azure command line tool, you will be able to create a fully functional Kubernetes cluster that is integrated with the rest of your Azure resources."

Keynote with Erich Gamma: Microsoft loves Open Source | Technical Summit 2016 - connecting.technologies.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 13:05:00 GMT

It all began five years ago, as an experiment, whether it is possible to create a development environment in the browser with JavaScript, HTML and CSS. Today it has become an expandable, intelligent editor that runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. Visual Studio Code is largely implemented in JavaScript / TypeScript and uses Node, Electron, and over 100 open source components. Visual Studio Code has also been an open source project since last November. It has a trip with some direction changes behind it. At the same time, Microsoft has also changed constantly. In this session, Erich Gamma describes the most important stages and directional changes of the journey, starting with the experiment up to version 1.0 of Visual Studio Code.

Erich Gamma:

Erich Gamma is a Microsoft Distinguished Engineer. He works with his team in Zurich on Visual Studio Code. Previously he worked for IBM and he was one of the fathers of Eclipse and was leading the Eclipse Java development tools. Erich is also a member of the Gang of Four, which is known for its classical book, "Design Patterns - Elements of Reusable Object-Oriented Software."
